Aero and Vista x64 blanks screen when game is running.

Hi all,

I'm having a problem with Vista x64 Ultimate. I run a dual-monitor system
with
a Nvidia 8800 GTS card and when I'm using Aero, and have a game running
(City of Heroes in my case, although I have seen others complaining of this
behavior with other games) the monitor that isn't running the game blanks.

I can fix this problem by not using the Aero theme, but would really prefer
to have
the eye candy available. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Play a different game, or run City of Heroes in Windowed Mode (pretty sure
there's an option), lots of DirectX games running full screen will interfere
with the other monitor in a dual monitor setup. Nothing can be done. Can try
the game in a different resolution as well, that sometimes helps. Run the
game in whatever resolution that monitor uses when not in game.
